I first told you about the Keystone Pipeline back on Tuesday, June 14, 2011. I told you how this could create an environment where 92 Percent of US Liquid Fuel Produced Here and Canada. 92 percent folks. Open one or two more places here in the US? 100 percent is not out of the question. Remember when George W. just MENTIONED we will start Drilling more here and using our OWN? Prices FELL over night by Dollars. They Plummeted. Imagine if we did not rely on Foreign Governments, other than our Friends in the North, for ANY of our Energy Needs?
Imagine all the JOBS. Imagine our National Security INCREASING by Hundreds of percent. With this Movement, actually assisted by Obama, of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the Middle East, Imagine ONE Guy in Charge. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Guy that DREAMS of being the one. Now imagine if he DOES it. Then he says "No more Oil for you." This is not a scare tactic. This is a EXSTREMLY REAL Possibility.
However, we need not worry about any of that if we were using our OWN Resources. We have MORE Oil and Natural Gas, in just one spot here, than the ENTIRE Middle East Combined. We need not worry about someone coming along and saying you want? You do this. ETC. Imagine NO Gas. Imagine NO Heating Oil. Imagine NOTHING.
Now Imagine all the Jobs. Now Imagine all the Revenue. Now Imagine NO worries of this. Now imagine CHEAP Gas. CHEAP Heating Oil. Affordable for all. It is not a Pipe Dream. Well, since one of the things we are talking about IS a Pipe, I guess you could call it a Pipe Dream. But it's not what the Liberal Loons are smoking. This is REAL. Reality. Possible in a relatively SHORT period of time.
So what does Obama do? He puts the Brakes on the whole thing. Why? Because he CARES about the Environment. According to The Foundry - Obama Delays Keystone Pipeline: Delays Jobs and Energy, Too Nicolas Loris November 10, 2011 at 4:48 pm
The Obama Administration announced it would delay the construction of the $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline that would bring in more than 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta, Canada, to the Texas Gulf coast.So SCREW Jobs. SCREW Affordable Energy. SCREW Increased Revenue. Why? Because he cares. He is thinking about the Environment. It's all a bunch of BS folks. He doesn't care about the Environment. He cares about VOTES.
What this delay really means is that President Obama is putting off an important election year decision in which two of his largest supporters—labor unions and environmentalists—are split on the issue. This tactic allows the decision to be delayed until after the 2012 elections.
More importantly, this means a delay in access to easy imports from our northern neighbor, the creation of thousands of jobs, and the generation of revenue for the states where the pipeline passes. Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas are collectively projected to collect $5.2 billion in property tax revenue as a result of building the pipeline.
Remember what he said about all those Wind Farms? Those that ARE Killing Rare and Endangered Birds DAILY? Remember what he said to all the Environuts that actually wanted the Studies Done? He said, "Kill the Damn Birds." He didn't use those exact words. But that IS what he said. He, his Administration said they wanted all those Environuts to take all there little Studies, roll them into one, and get done with it, so he can further his AGENDA.
Forget the fact they are not a MAYBE threat. They ARE killing Rare and Endangered Birds and Bats. They ARE posing a threat to the Health and Well being of the People they are closest to. We get story after story of Wind Farms going Silent, because of the Public COMPLAINING about them. When the Wind doesn't Blow, how do they run? On OIL. If they are found to be a failure, what happens? They are ABANDONED. Left to stand there and Corrode. But all that? It's COOL with Obama. Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs lost because of his attacks on Oils and Natural Gas? He's COOL with that. Grandma can't heat her Home in the Winter? He's COOL with that. Hey, he told us that with his Plan, Energy Costs would "Necessarily Skyrocket."
So FAILED Wind Farms Killing Endangered Species. Cool. I can hear the Conversation now. I bet it went something like this. Keystone Pipeline? "Uh, what's that?" "Well, Mr President, it's a way to create thousands of jobs, Generate Revenue for the States where the Pipeline passes. Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, ensuring you get Votes from these States, and Texas are collectively projected to collect $5.2 Billion in Property Tax Revenue as a result of building the Pipeline." "Uh Great! Lets do it." "OK Mr. President, just sign here." "Uh, wait. What's this? It says something about Oil?" "Well yeah Mr. President." "Uh NO!! No! We can't have that. I'm engaging in Class Warfare. Uh, Trying to push the Green Movement. Uh, I'm making Oil to be the Enemy. I can't do this." "But Mr. President. Think of all the Benefits." "I don't care. I need Votes. I don't need this. Uh, say it's the Environment. An endangered Jumping Field Mouse might, uh, hit it's head on the Pipe while running through the Field, uh, or something." "What about all the Birds being SLAUGHTERED every day at Wind Farms?" "Birds? Who cares? Just say NO. No Pipeline. Uh, right now anyway. Wait until I get Re-elected, then maybe we'll talk about it."
